Ends and Means

by Karen Aldain-Darkendale

Listen to a recording of this song

For Illyrio Mortain-Darkendale, who stood so long against unliving, and fell in love with a corruptor.

Another sleepless night,
But you are here beside me.
I hold you tight,
But my world still turns inside me.
When I made my stand
I thought could withstand
Anything that life could throw at me…
Except you,
Amazing you,
Amazing me.

My traitor’s heart is torn apart,
My soul may burn, I cannot turn away –
You’d still be
In my dreams.
Not lost my way,
But lost in grey,
Ends and means

Never seen bright days
In the black and white of heroes.

But still in my way,
I made my difference from the shadows.
And it wouldn’t be
One you would see –
You won’t look beyond the shadows to the light.
Not to be,
All you see
Is the night

I cannot deplore what I adore,
But peaceful sleep each night now keeps away –
You’ll still be
In my dreams.
Not lost my way,
But lost in grey,
Ends and means

Chose my way,
Content to stay.
Ends and Means
